    Detroit is currently 7 points up on finishing dead last. Here's the rest of their March schedule:

    At LA
    At Anaheim
    At Colorado
    Vs Philly
    Vs Washington
    At Toronto
    At Montreal
    Vs Pittsburgh
    At Buffalo
    Vs Ottawa

    After another several tough games, 3 of those last 4 are against fellow cellar dwellers. The "top" 3 could go right down to the wire this year...

    EDIT: 7 points. Math is hard.

    Mtl is a wildcard here. They're so bad but niemi had been godlike for them

    Ottawa and Arizona could pass us

    Vancouver might not win a single game to finish the season. Buffalo is doing OK but they're too far back to pass us

    It's quite possible that Detroit finishes 2nd last.
    Arizona and Buffalo have played better hockey of late.
    If they continue what they've done lately, and if Detroit continues what they've done, Detroit might finish 2nd last to Vancouver.

    So say we finish 4th last is the lottery top 3 or 2? If top 3 then we can finish anywhere from pick #1-6, and if top 2 we can finish 1-2, 4-6 correct?

    Top 3, so it would be 1-7 if Wings finished 4th.

    This doesn't seem to lineup correctly atm though. We are currently 5th to last but it says 5th is impossible for us to get (as well as 6th). Granted there are still 13-14 games to play. I'm hopeful for a 4th to last finish but 3 is still possible just not very likely.

    It is last year's standings. But if you start with Colorado as worst team, you can see the odds from there.

    Funny how people thought the Rangers were tanking right and the Wings wrong a few weeks ago.

    Wings and Nucks in a race to the bottom right now. Hopefully AZ, Sens and Sabres win some games.

    After the loss against LA, 3 more teams will finish above us: Toronto, Washington and Pittsburgh. 8 down, 22 to go.

    This current form is a prove for me, that they overachieved until the deadline, and did let the season go after the Tatar-trade.

    Team response is pretty easy to see.

    I base my overachieving on the pre-season ranks, when the team didn't change much in the summer and many analyses did predict us to be 3rd worst team.

    Of course pre-season ranks are not the full truth, like Colorado and Arizona were predicted to be worst, but Colorado had youth potential to go up and did make many depth additions on the team. No one just didn't see it. But Wings were almost stand pat, so bad season after another wasn't a big surprise.

    I also won't blame Blashill about anything. He was a playoff coach with Pavel Datsyuk on the team and hasn't been without. He just lacks Elite talent.

    Just look at Colorado, where Jared Bednar was told to be worst rookie coach ever, which everybody would laugh out from the league after horrible last season. When he got more talent on the team (importing own picks, trades, waiver claims), they are heading towards the playoffs.

    Paul Maurice also got critics about being the worst coach ever, and look where is now, when he has talent on the roster. Last time he had enough talent on the roster was 15 years ago.

    It seems the players have a clear sense of reality. Battling to not be sellers right up to TDL. End up selling proper roster players at the deadline. Now they are chasing the best pick possible. Its not like they've downed tools, but they aren't stupid...where's the motivation to push to the max when the playoffs are gone, you are selling and you know a bad run is probably better for the team. Its bound to take the edge off.

    I know there has been a lot of talk about the winning culture, how we should not lose it. But they tried what they could for 5 months. Now, letting 1 month go as a toilet flush doesn't matter at all in the big picture. Or, it is at least the least damage you can have.

    I like it this way, you push until the deadline as you can and see where you are. I hate what those Buffaloes and Arizonas are doing, teams are totally lost already from start of the season, and whole season becomes meaningless.

    Some silver lining in this current mess.

    Another loss and Detroit is officially eliminated from the playoffs. They currently have a .04% chance to make it if they win every game.

    At this point, the season just needs to end so the appropriate people can be officially fired before the draft.
